Grammar Girl's 101 Troublesome Words You'll Master in No Time

Have you 'run the gantlet' lately?  Have you watched any 'fun' films? Do you know how to spell 'Hanukah'? Grammar Girl in her entertaining new book, Grammar Girl's 101 Troublesome Words You'll Master in No Time, will inform you about these phrases and words.  Mignon Fogarty is perhaps the only person who can make grammar so interesting!

Cleverly constructed, this book tells you the history of difficult words and phrases.  You are then informed about why the words and phrases are troublesome. Fogarty explains the difference between 'running the gauntlet' and 'running the gantlet', for example.

Fogarty then tells you how to use the word or phrase correctly and gives examples.  The examples are from many different sources including classic novels, current novels, columns and non-fiction books.  In some cases, I enjoyed the examples so much that I discovered books to check out!

Everyone should have a copy of this extremely useful and interesting book.
